Looks like Canon isn’t the only one on fire when it comes to announcing new gear in 2020 (at least judging from the rumors). After a long break, it seems that we’ll see as many as three new drones from DJI this year. And according to the reports, the first one could hit the market in February.
The Canon EOS R has proven to be somewhat popular. But so as to not put all their eggs in one basket, and to not eat into potential sales of a future model, it certainly wasn’t the perfect camera Canon shooters had hoped they’d release to compete with Sony’s latest round of mirrorless cameras.
Rumours of an upcoming EOS R Mark II announcement have been around for a little while, and there have even been reports of them being tested out in the wild. But there has been no information on their capabilities. Now, though, Canon Rumors has reported a list of possible specs.
It looks like we might be getting close to an announcement for the Fujifilm X-T4 according to a report on Fuji Rumors. They say they’ve received some good information that they’ve “triple checked”, and the X-T4 is not only coming soon, but it will have in-body-image stabilisation (IBIS).
Nokishita posted a screenshot showing the registration of Fujifilm cameras with the codes FF190005 and FF190004 (expected to be the X-T3 replacement) with China’s MIIT on January 8th. But Fuji Rumors says that an official announcement could come as soon as next month.
Rumours of a Nikon D750 replacement, which won’t be called the D760, but either the D770, D780 or D790 (the current favourite seems to be D780), have been around for a few weeks now, and the camera itself may be officially announced as early as next week, a report suggests.
Nikon Rumours believes we might hear an official announcement and say they have an unconfirmed date for January 7th, 2020. That would be the start of CES. It might be unusual for Nikon to announce a camera at a general consumer electronic show rather than one specific to photography like CP+ or Photokina, but it wouldn’t be unheard of – especially as Nikon isn’t going to Photokina.
According to a Tweet sent out by Nokishita, the upcoming Canon EOS 1DX Mark III along with the WFT-E9 wireless file transmitter have been added to Canon’s latest product list. They believe that they have been added to the list a little ahead of an official announcement in anticipation of the Christmas and New Year holidays.
That they’ve been added to the list, though, suggests that we may hear an official announcement very soon. This may happen in as little as two weeks, when CES kicks off on January 7th.
When images first leaked of a white Leica, I thought it looked absolutely stunning. I knew it was going to be well outside of my budget, but I didn’t expect the price tag it’s been given. The White Edition Leica M10-P has now been officially announced. A US price was not released, but the UK price is £12,750, which works out to around $16,700. Of course, you don’t just get the camera for this price. No, that would be silly. You also get a silver chrome Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens.
Godox is apparently planning to release an AD1200Pro head and pack strobe. Images have leaked on social media of what appears to be an AD1200Pro strobe, with a fairly substantial-looking pack and a small flash head. There’s been no official announcement from Godox yet, but it looks quite promising for those demanding more power on location.
If the rumors are correct, Canon is working on an EF/RF hybrid EOS mirrorless camera. Now, Canon Watch suggests that this camera will support a moving sensor. And when they say a moving sensor, they mean a sensor that sits on some kind of rails and can move to adjust between different flange distances.
Remember that about a year and a half ago, Sony confirmed that an A7S III is coming soon. Then Sony announced the Sony A7R IV a year later. (a mark 4 A7R camera before announcing the A7S mark 3? Then nothing? The wait for the highly anticipated Sony A7S III may be over.
Rumors site Sony Alpha Rumors just posted what they claim is the first out-in-the-wild photo of the Sony A7S III.
Cards on the table, I’ve never really seen the appeal of Leica vs the other brands. Or, to put it more accurately, I’ve never really got why they cost so much more than other cameras offering a wider range of features. I’ve never had any desire to even own a Leica, but this kinda makes me want to.
Nokishita has posted some images of a white (except for the little red Leica logo) Leica M10 to Twitter as an “unpublished limited model”. They’ve also posted photos of an M10-P “Ghost” edition they say will also be announced at some point soon.
